Shavuos

A Mount Sinai Wedding

Shavuos occurs fifty days after the first day of Passover, and is the anniversary of our acceptance of the Torah at Mount Sinai. On this day, we celebrate God’s special gift to us, a code of moral and ethical conduct that has held us together as a nation for thousands of years.

During the time of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, Shavuos was one of the three holidays for which the Torah Commands us to make a pilgrimage to the that Temple, bringing with us the first fruits of the new harvest.

A Unique Encounter

The Torah teaches that at Sinai, G-d did not reveal Himself to a single individual. Rather, He spoke to the entire Jewish nation.

Moses Commanded Us the Torah

Did we hear the commandments from Moses, or from G-d Himself? Insight into Sinai's "out of body experience" is revealed through the Ten Commandments.
